"Hi, I'm Sam! I majored in Fashion Design and Management and minored in Anthropology at Cornell University and I graduated with honors this past Spring. I am now working full time as a product developer in the fashion industry. I have interned at companies such as The Row, Oscar de la Renta, and Ralph Lauren in both design and product development. At school, I worked as a Teaching Assistant for two fashion courses, Fashion CAD (photoshop and illustrator) and Art, Design, and Visual Thinking. I tutored and advised students as a hobby and I served as the VP of Alumni Relations for a fashion career building organization, connecting students to professionals and helping students secure summer internships. I would love to help out with improving technical skills and working with students to build their portfolios and resumes so that they can successfully apply to colleges and careers in the fashion industry.

I specialize in fashion history as it relates to Anthropology and minored in Anthropology at Cornell. As a student, I worked for 4 years in the Cornell Costume and Textile Collection, a study collection of 10,000 objects representing fashion history from the late 1700s through today. I also completed ethnographic research on Orthodox Jewish Women's Dress, which became my honors thesis.

I have excellent skills in both Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, particularly relating to fashion CAD development and Tech Pack development. I was a 3-time winner of the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund Case Study Competition, and recently, my work was selected to be presented at the International Textile and Apparel Association Annual Conference.

As a fashion design major, I studied couture sewing techniques and completed a 10 piece collection my senior year of college. I also spent late nights in studio tutoring younger students in sewing skills and preparing them for their different assignments.

Please contact me to schedule tutoring lessons! I am most often available on weekends and after 7:30 pm on wee" less...
